Powered by a 3.8 liter V8 bi-turbo engine, the MP4-12C is build to the FIA GT3 regulations based on the MP4-12C road car. The car made its competition debut in the British GT Championship earlier this year and went on to compete in various events, including the Spa 24 Hours race. The car became an instant success as all 20 cars built for the 2012 season have already been sold to customers.

The addition of the MP4-12C broadens iRacing sports car racing content, giving subscribers access to cars from all three major GT classes as the Mclaren joins the GT1-class Corvette C6.R and the Ford GT-R GT2 class car.
